When will Johto Pokemon become available on Pokemon Go? Pokemon Go launched on July 6 with the original 151 Pokemon of the Kanto region, but noticeably absent were the Pokemon from Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos. When will those Pokemon be added?

As of now, Nintendo, the Pokemon Company, and Niantic, the creator of Pokemon Go, have not made any mention of expanding mobile game play beyond the first 151 Pokemon. The in-game PokeDex also only lists 151 Pokemon, ending with #151, Mew.

This may be for a variety of reasons, and that the original 151 Pokemon are more well known than their later counterparts.

Pokemon Go has sent Nintendo stocks climbing, with CNN reporting that Nintendo “stock surged nearly 25% in Tokyo on Monday, after jumping 9% on Friday.” The game is now #1 in the App Store on iPhones.

The mobile game release comes months before the next console installment of the Pokemon franchise, Pokemon Sun & Moon.
